Today is the Blood, Boobs and Carnage Blogfest host by Alex Cavanaugh and Heather Gardner
Blogfest: On May 18, 2015, post about a movie, television show, book, or all three that falls into the category of Blood, Boobs, and Carnage. (Or just Blood and Carnage or other mixture.) It can be any genre that fits the bill – fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, western, thriller, etc. Post the badge and visit other participants. 



The Terminator is one of the best known sci-fi action films ever made. I chose it for my Blood, Boobs and Carnage pick because it has everything. Maybe the boobage is of a more tame nature than of recent film make but the Blood and Carnage are off the charts. When The Terminator goes back in time to eliminate Sarah Connor before her son can become a threat to the machines in the future carnage comes early on as at first the machine terminates incorrect Sarah's with the misfortune of crossing his path. But when The Terminator finds the correct one the r…

Movie Love: Avengers: Age of Ultron and Celebrating Movies

Sunday May 10, 2015 I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. the much awaited sequel for the first Avengers movie. I will say this, I had a really good time watching this movie. While in some ways it's not better than the first in others it is even better. The lesser is simple things like the feel not being as coherent and put together as the first so pretty much technical mumbo critic jumbo. So moving unto why this movie is still awesome.

1. Way more risks were taken in this one. You will actually wonder who is going to survive at the end of all this insanity and while the first movie had it's moments...come on. We knew who was returning for the most part. This sequel has crazy and dangerous turns.

2. Ultron. Oh my God this villain knows how to pull the heart and disgust strings at the same time. James Spader definitely took some tips from his character Red from The Blacklist. Will not spoil it for you but damn...a really good villain. No Loki but...there is no other like Loki…

Book Review: Radioactive by H.g. Lynch

I am back and today I have a review for you from the paranormal side of things. This author gives us a kick ass heroine and a crazy new world where Rads (radioactive zombies) and politicians are...well still politicians. Oh and tomorrow will see my first regular weekly movie review and Thursday will see the return of Getting Personal.




Summary: THE WORLD ENDED. NOW THERE ARE ONLY RUINS...

A hundred years after The End, Britiain is run by a new government and going out after dark is suicide; after Curfew, the Shapers - the new and brutal police force - roam the streets, looking for Rule-breakers, and if they catch you, they'll kill you. But the Shapers aren't the only thing to worry about, because thanks to nuclear radiation, there are the Rads - twisted, flesh-eating monsters that used to be human. 
Despite all that, Andy has a pretty good life; she has a small home, she does trade in scavenged items to keep food on the table, and years after her family was killed by Shapers, she…

Book Review: Perfection (Sisters in Love Book 1) by J.L. Campbell

Image
Yes I am skipping IWSG for the first time in a long while. Nuh knock me off Ninja or minions! Much love, I will be back next month.

My first review for 2015! Yay! I am back on the front lines of book reviewing and today I am reviewing my dear friend Joy Campbell's first NA novel Perfection. She gave me an e-copy (like all the cool book reviewers get, LOL) and I got to read it for myself. This novel is also first in a series and what a series this is shaping up to be. Now don't let friendship fool you, I review like jackhammer lick rock stone.

Malik has no plans to give up and schemes to get her back, but his efforts throw his cousin in the middle of his campaign. Natasha doesn't need another guy messing with her brain, or her plans for the future, but Karim is different f…

Next Stop on the Perfection Mini-Tour!

Today I am taking part in the blog tour for Perfection by J.L. Campbell. Read on below to find out more and come back Wednesday to see my review. NA has been a burgeoning genre and today you will a novel that takes it from a Jamaican perspective. Now take it away Joy.

Perfection explores the world of Karim and Natasha, two new adults who have made their share of mistakes and are learning to deal with their individual challenges.
Set in Jamaica, the story has unique nuances because of the locale, but the themes are universal—friendship, parenting, relationships and trust.

Enjoy a sample from a novel that has been described as 'Perfection' by several readers.



"I love the title because it sums up the novel - PERFECTION! Campbell's books are set in her country of Jamaica and I love the backdrop of the beautiful tropical island as much as I love her characters and plots. Always interesting and never dull, Campbell's books are an excellent read."

Have you read any…
